Open Question

Castelle lanpress Jr. MP Model name: AS3600

Is there a test to see if this part is working? We are using it in a summagraphics plotter/cutter model T1300. We changed the master circuit board on the summagraphics. We tried switching cables, we also know that the functions on the plotter are also working. Is there a pin connection that we could put a bridge for an LED to show data?

Unfortunately, you haven't provided any details as to the steps you've thus far taken. So lets start at the beginning and solve your problem step-by-step.

Step 1 Locate the Queue name, or Port name, of your printer.

Click here for instructions on locating the Queue name since you are using a DPR-1260.

Step 2 After you locate the Queue or Port name, you will want to write it down. (You can also highlight it with your cursor, and copy the info. This will allow you to paste it in to the wizard later on.)

Step 3 Click Start and then Control Panel. Locate the Printers icon. Click the Add A Printer icon.


Step 4 Click Add a Local Printer. Use this option only if you don't have a USB printer. (Windows automatically installs USB printers when you plug them in).


Step 5 Select Create New Port. For the port type, select standard TCP/IP Port. Click Next.


Step 6 Click the drop down menu for Device Type and choose TCP/IP Device.

In the Hostname or IP Address field, input the ip address of your print server. (The default address for most of D-Link's print servers is

The PORT NAME field is purely for identification purposes. This allows you to discern the port you've created later on for configuration.


Step 7 Windows will attempt to detect the printer. Please allow a few moments for the operating system to do this.


Step 8 Highlight the radio button labeled Custom and press the Settings button.


Step 9 Click the radio button labeled LPR.

The LPR Queue Name field will now become available. Here you will need to enter the Queue or Port name that you acquired in Step 1.

Check the box labeled LPR Byte Counting Enabled. Click OK.


Step 10 At this point, you'll be brought back to the previous window. Click Next.


Step 11 Windows will now attempt to detect and install the printer driver. If Windows is unable to detect the printer and find a matching driver, you will be given the option of selecting a printer from a list of available printer drivers.


Step 12 In the left window you have a list of manufacturers, and on the right side you have the various models. Select the model that pertains to your printer. Click Next.


Step 13 Next you will be prompted to give the printer a name. You can leave the default Windows name, or you can create your own if you wish. Click Next.


Step 14 Once the printer successfully installs you will be given the option to print a test page. If the test prints then the print server is configured properly. Click Finish.


You should be linked up now.

All the best

Both green and orange lights blinking. Printer

Try deleting all ready to print documents, restarting the printer and then re-booting the computer. Somebody in there is confused.

If that doesn't work, check your documentation on how to print a test page, if it will print then the problem is which the application otherwise re-install the printer.

HP750c Plus, with Jetdirect j2552a or j4100n not working.

Here's a few troubleshooting steps that should help you out.

1. Are you getting a link light? If not, check the cable and the switch - if these are OK then you have a bad JetDirect.

2. Print a test sheet from the 750 and check the IP configuration. Be sure that you have an IP address that is on the same subnet as the computer you want to print from. If not, then you either need to configure an appropriate static IP or configure DHCP for the MIO and make sure it is working.

3. Once you have the IP worked out, try to ping the MIO from your PC. You can also try to connect to the MIO using the embedded web server if the firmware is recent enough. If either of these work then you should be in good shape. Try to re-install and see if it works.

One last thing, if you are printing directly to the plotter from the client computer without using a print server then one part of the setup is non-intuitive. When you are asked if the printer is local or network, you have to select "local" even though this is clearly not the case. Then when you get to choose a port, create a new TCP port.

Good luck and if the above doesn't help, post an update and we'll take it from there.

Netgear ps121 won't print

Possible reason why you cannot print with the print server is because the computer is not getting a valid IP from the router or a firewall is installed in the computer. You have to disable all firewalls installed in the computer.

For the print server setup, please follow the steps below:

Note: Before setting up the print server, make sure that you can print when printer is connected directly to the computer.

1. Wire the print server to router. Check the lights on it. It should have the ACT light on and the Error light off.

2. One way to test if the printer would work with the print server is to reset the print server for 3 to 5 seconds while it is powered on and after you release the button, the printer should automatically print the IP address of the print server.

Note: If the printer did not print, there is a possibility that they are not compatible. However, you may still continue to try to set up the print server.

3. Install the PS121 software.

a. Power on your computer, let the operating system boot up completely, and log in as needed.
b. Insert the Resource CD for the PS121 into your CD-ROM drive. The CD main page shown at the right will load.
c. Click Install Software.
d. Click Next and follow the software installation utility prompts to complete the software installation.
e. When prompted, restart your computer to complete the installation.
f. When your computer restarts, click Finish to run the Print Server Setup Wizard.

4. Run the Print Server Setup Wizard to Set Up a Fixed IP Address for the PS121.

a. The Print Server Setup Wizard screen should be displayed.
b. Click Next to proceed. The Print Server Wizard will now search your network for the PS121. If the Print Server Setup Wizard cannot find your PS121, check the network connections and status lights on the PS121.
c. The “Server Name” and the “IP Address” your network assigned to the PS121 are displayed. Click Next to proceed to the device name screen.
d. You can enter a descriptive Device Name and Domain Name or accept the defaults. Click Next to proceed to the IP Address configuration screen. The Print Server Wizard displays a recommended static IP address setting for the PS121. This is usually fine.
e. Click Next to proceed.
f. Click Finish to exit the Print Server Setup Wizard. This completes the configuration of the PS121 for operation on your network.
g. Click Yes to run the Add Printer Port Wizard. Follow the instructions in the next section for using the this wizard to set up each computer to use the PS121.

To set up each computer to use the PS121, please follow the instructions below:

1. Use the NETGEAR Add Printer Wizard to set up each PC to use the PS121.
a. When the Print Server Setup Wizard finishes, you are prompted to run the Add Printer Port Wizard. Click Yes to proceed. Alternatively, from the Windows Start menu NETGEAR Print Server program group, you can run the NETGEAR Add Printer Wizard.
b. After a short delay while the software searches the network for your PS121, the Printer Select window opens and displays the PS121 you have set up.
c. Click Next to proceed to the Port/Printer name screen. Take note of the printer model number listed.

2. Set up the correct printer driver for the printer port.
a. Click Next to proceed to the Port/Printer name screen. Take note of the printer model number listed.
b. Click Next to proceed to the Select Printer screen. If you see the exact printer model number listed as the printer model number from in the previous screen, click it to select it from the list.
c. If prompted, print a test page to verify operation of the printer and the PS121. Then, close any remaining Add Printer Port Wizard or Windows Add Printer Wizard windows.

Use the NETGEAR PS121 Mini Print Server Resource CD to run the Add Printer Port Wizard to set up each PC on you network that you want to use with the PS121. Select the port you added

You may also use the links below as your guide to troubleshoot the print server:

However, if this does not resolve the issue we will need to get some additional details from you to be able to assist you further. I have summarized my questions below:

1. Model number of router
2. Model of printer
3. Operating system of computer/s

Print server won't work with 2 printers of same model??????

Hi Pirate!
Can your remotely acces the two printer servers? If they are located by name, on the network, make sure it is not the same on both, like a default name. If it is possible, connect to one, disconnecting the second one, and see if it has a fixed IP, Like Change it off the default, or use use the DHCP option, if it is has it.
I was working with some Intel print servers, long ago, that used software on each PC to locate the printer servers. Since the both had the same name, and they conflicted.

Good Luck.

Print server

Check the port configurations on both XP machines. It should have the IP address of the print server connected to the plotter.
